One of my heroes is Richard Branson not only because of the level of success he’s achieved but because of the way he lives his life on his island doing what he loves. But if I dig a little deeper what truly resonates with me is Richards courage and humility. Another two of my heroes are my grandmother and mother and from them I value their compassion. These ladies are the most caring people you’ll ever meet.
When we are attracted to heroes or anyone we admire it’s because we admire a value or a set of values that resonate with us. It could be anything like vulnerability, passion, courage, independence. It’s a value that you wish you had a little more of.
So the next time you admire someone for something, think about what value that is and lean into it.
And who’s your heroes and why?
